WASHINGTON, Sept 17 (Reuters) - The chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Financial Services Committee hopes to move a single, consolidated bill on financial regulation reform to the House floor for a vote in early November, a Democratic committee aide said on Thursday.
Democratic Representative Barney Frank plans to handle the financial reform agenda in coming weeks in closely spaced committee hearings and drafting sessions involving a half-dozen or so separate pieces of legislation, the aide said.

The first sessions will involve Obama administration proposals to form a Consumer Financial Protection Agency and to regulate over-the-counter derivatives.

Then the committee wants to consolidate those into one bill to be brought to the floor for a vote, the aide said.
